in the transition to democracy, i am convinced that ultimately government of the people, by the people, and for the people is more likely to bring about prosperity and individual opportunity to serve as a basis for peace in our world. host: in "the herald," they put it this way -- host: dallas, texas. bob, independent line. caller: i am more of a liberal, but i applied my beliefs liberally to all issues. when the iranian president speaks about eliminating or wiping israel off the map, we must remember that one country was eliminated, wiped out, and that was palestine. no one speaks to that. he does not speak about annihilating. and i hate to defend him. he is all the things i find abhorrent as a liberal, but this year, we try to demonize this person when the issue is israel, a theocracy in the middle east that eliminated another country off the map, palestine. it is only for people within the same religion. it is ridiculous. and his support comes from, you know, the same people who support that right here in america. thank you. host: carol, california. what is the name of your town? go

to make a fair comment about c-span. you're basically repeating what i think is a government propaganda line about consumer spending in such a way to promote the re-election of barack obama. these stories get planted by administration officials in major newspapers like "usa today"to increase the chances of reelection. you are repeating it, pedro, as i have seen it in the past to cut off conservative and libertarian callers very quickly when they criticize what you are doing or what c-span is doing. i want to make that fair criticism before i answer your question. host: since i have not cut you off yeah, go right ahead. caller: especially since yesterday there was a major news development that c-span could have run as the lead story this morning about a comment made on c-span by gentlemen patrick clausen for the washington institute for policy where he stated almost unequivocally that there needs to be a false flag provocation event in the persian gulf to start a regional war with iran. that could have been their first story today, but it was not. you are talking about how everything is

. it's a little more complicated than that. the federal government's was offering massachusetts $385 million, i believe, and that covered about half of the cost of providing care to uninsured people. governor romney had said at i have an opportunity to save the state a lot of money, because if we did not take the federal money, it would have gone away, we would not have access to it anymore. with health care reform, we are able to accept this large sum of money and free some of the cost of providing care for people who don't have health insurance. host: we're learning about the health care law that governor romney signed into law in massachusetts with the reports from the boston herald christine mcconvillechristine. she's been with the herald five years. she also reported for the boston globe before that. we have a phone line set up especially for massachusetts residents. and republicans and democrats can call us as well as independent scholars. -- callers. let's look at some details of how the health care law has played out. 98% of adults are now covered. nearly 100% of children are
